5.0 von 5 Sternen An absolute classic
When I was a child, I voraciously and raptly read the entire "Anne" series cover to cover many, many times, and I can honestly say that growing up with her and reading about her adventures gave me the greatest pleasures of my childhood.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An absolute classic, 15. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anne of Green Gables (Taschenbuch)
When I was a child, I voraciously and raptly read the entire "Anne" series cover to cover many, many times, and I can honestly say that growing up with her and reading about her adventures gave me the greatest pleasures of my childhood. At first, I didn't want to read this book - it was given to me as a present by my mother when I was 11 years old, and what 11 year old wants to do what their mother tells them to do? But when I started reading it, it attracted me like metal filings to a magnet. Such is the power of Anne Shirley. She won my heart in the same way that she won the hearts of Marilla and Matthew, and I often wonder what my childhood would have been like without her. I can't praise this book enough, and although I'm now 25 years old, I still get an unearthly sense of joy, fulfillment and pleasure every time I read it. It is a true classic that will forever be cherished in the hearts of all individuals who read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The red-headed Anne Shirley comes to live at Green Gables, 11. November 2005

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anne of Green Gables (Taschenbuch)
In 1985 when I stumbled upon Kevin Sullivan's wonderful production of "Anne of Green Gables" with Megan Follows as Anne, Colleen Dewhurst as Marilla, and Richard Farnsworth as Mathew, it was my introduction to the Lucy Maud Montgomery's red-headed orphan. Like millions of others, I fell in love with the production and then proceeded to read this novel, the other seven books in the Anne Series, and then "The Chronicles of Avonlea," "The Story Girl," the "Jane of Lantern Hill" books, and every other thing written by Montgomery that I could get my hands on (and this was before all of those paperback collections of Montgomery's short stories were published).
In 1904 Montgomery had written down an idea for a story in her notebook: "Elderly couple apply to orphan asylum for a boy. By mistake a girl is sent them." In what must be heartening for many would be authors, Montgomery's manuscript for "Anne of Green Gables" was rejected repeated by publishers before it was finally accepted. The book was a bestseller from the moment it was published in June 1908 (I have a 19th impression printed in September 1910), although a critic in "The New York Times" complained that, "there is no real difference between the girl at the end of the story and the one at the beginning of it." Readers of the book would quite happy with that fact, because the reason we love this story is not that the talkative, red-haired orphan girl with her big green-grey eyes changes during the story, but that Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert, the elderly sister and brother who wanted to adopt a boy and got a girl instead, have changed profoundly.
Mark Twain described Anne Shirley as "The dearest and most moving and delightful child since the immortal Alice," and nobody has been able to top that statement. Supposedly Montgomery's description of her famous literary creation was based on a photography of Evelyn Nesbit, the notorious American beauty who was the mistress whose husband, Harry K. Thaw, shot and killed her love, Stanford White, in the first scandalous murder trial of the 20th century. I suppose there is something archetypal about stories about orphans, that allows young readers to identify with such characters and explains why generations of children have responded to such stories. But what sets Montgomery's creation apart is her ability to provide of laughter and tears, what with her vivid imagination and her great desire to be loved. You laugh over Anne's over wrought apology to Mrs. Rachel Lynde and how her introduction to Gilbert Blythe ends with her breaking a slate over his head. But then there are the wonderfully touching scenes when Marilla apologizes for refusing to believe Anne about her broach, when Mathew goes to town to get Anne a dress with puffed sleeves, and when the Reaper whose name is Death comes to visit Green Gables. There are just so many wonderful moments in this novel, which is the best in the series. When you read the rest of the books in the series, this is the one you will keep coming back to again and again to read once more your favorite parts (I just did).
I have two daughters and despite my best intentions I have never been able to persuade them to read "Anne of Green Gables." But given how long it took me to get around to them they still have at least a decade to beat me to the punch in relative terms, and I have the Sullivan productions on DVD so that I can use the same hook that worked so well one me. Once they do I am sure they will be just as captivated by all of the others who love the Anne-Girl and who have traveled to Prince Edward Island to see all of the sites that Montgomery translated into the world of Anne Shirley.
My favorite memory is when we went to "Green Gables." You go in through the front door and follow the way around the first floor and then up the stairs to the second floor. As I was at the bottom of those stairs the young woman watching the door had momentarily stopped the line entering the site. In this case that person who had to wait was a young Japanese girl, who looked to be about eight years old, and who was shivering in delight at the fact that she was standing on the threshold of Anne Shirley's Green Gables. That is how beloved Lucy Maud Montgomery's creation is almost a century after she was first set down on paper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A sequel which is as good as the orginal!, 17. Juni 2000
In this, the second story of the Anne series, we become reacquainted with Anne and her friends, and we are introduced to many fascinating new characters who either make her feel like tearing her hair out or enrich her life. Although she is now sixteen and a fully fledged schoolmarm, she still displays the irrepressible knack for getting into scrapes that she had as a child, which include falling through a roof, dying her nose a ghastly colour, losing her temper with the irrascible Mr Harrison, her next door neighbour, and sowing the first seeds of love with Gilbert Blythe.
Millions of readers around the world are forever thankful that Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote several more books about Anne's escapades, for if she hadn't, we would forever be wondering what would have become of Anne, asking ourselves what kind of teacher would she have been like, would she have gone on to university, would she have married Gilbert Blythe and borne his children? When we contemplate asking ourselves these questions, we would perhaps feel amazed that a mere literary character has had such a profound effect on our lives. Then perhaps, after doing all this, we would then return to our bookshelf, pick up a story about Anne, read a few pages, and then we would know for sure why we have fallen eternally in love with her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a book to last your whole life long..., 10. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anne of Green Gables (Taschenbuch)
My mother read this book not very many years after it was written and she loved it. When I was 8 (many years ago) she bought it for me. I recall that I had trouble getting in to it -- but once past the first chapter I devoured it again and again. Anne is witty, charming, imaginative AND she is very much ahead of her time in her pride in her intellectual abilities. She competes with (gasp) a boy for a scholarship and for a job. And we don't question her right to do so. A worthy role model.
I could never estimate the number of times I've read this book. I could never estimate the comfort and support it brought me through my growing up years. Lucy Montgomery gave a great and wonderful gift to generations of little girls -- of all ages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a great sequel a great book, 25. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Anne of Avonlea was almost asgood as the first Anne book. It is about Anne's life as a school teacher in Avonlea. Marilla adopts 2 mischeifous twins and life is never dull. You could read it as a sequel or as a book by itself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book!!!!, 27. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I've re-read this book (along with the whole series) about 6 times, and I still find it so good it's hard to leave it until I finish it. Lucy Maud created a character that catches your heart strings and won't let go! (Well, I fell in love with Gilbert Blythe, but that doesn't matter)I also reccomend other books by Lucy M. Montgomery featuring Anne as well as others like Emily of New Moon, Kilmeny of the Orchard, and SPECIALLY, A TANGLED WEB. See if you can stop reading them once you have started!!! I asure you that you'll spend hours of enjoyment with them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sure To Please And Never Disappoint, 1. Dezember 2012
Von 
James Gallen (St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anne of Green Gables (Taschenbuch)
My daughter became a fan of "Anne of Green Gables", our neighbor visited author Lucy Maud Montgomery's home on Prince Edward Island and I was scheduled to see a high school play based on the story so it was time to pick it up and read it wasn't it? Wrong! I waited too long.

Anne, pronounced with an "e", is a talkative orphan who is delivered by mistake to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, bachelor and spinster siblings who share their home and farm at Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. Despite having requested a boy, Anne wins their hearts before they can send her back, a tragedy that would have made for a much too short book. The decision to keep her having been made, the reader is treated to a series of humorous and heartwarming events in the life of this bright and energetic girl. As Anne grows we see her make friends and rivals, while Marilla and Mathew experience disappointment, embarrassment and a swelling pride.

I do not want to give away too much of the story. I want to leave it for you to enjoy for yourselves. Whether you are a young girl looking for an exciting book, an adult seeking a light, entertaining read, or anyone who needs a reminder of the beauty of nature and the things that are really important, "Anne of Green Gables" is sure to please and never disappoint.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AN ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY BEAUTIFUL,SUBTLE ROMANCE, 3. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anne of Green Gables (Taschenbuch)
I really don't know how I am going to review this book. Putting something so beautifully alive into cold, brutal words has never been my forte. It seemed committing some kind of sacrilege, but nevertheless I felt something of loyalty to do so. Basically this sweet, innocent tale is about an orphan girl- Anne Shirley and the countless scapes that she seems to have a talent for getting into. Her beautiful, friendship with Diana Barry, friend, not to mention enemies at school, especially a certain significant one- Gilbert Blythe whom she will share a very special comradeship with and later on in life become his wife. This classic also tells about her wonderful flights of fancy, and the many enchanting places where she and Diana often build castles in the air. This touching, heartwarming tale has been spun so cleverly that Anne and her successors really do live! I can live and relive Anne's world over and over again, not once finding it tiresome. This beautiful, timeless classic is naturally the masterpiece of the Dreamer of Dreams- Lucy Maud Montgomery, whom I sincerely admire, for as she says " For things seen pass away, but the things that are unseen are eternal" Anne of the Island

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesing combination of stories, 25. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book is full of interesting and fascinating stories. Some of them are hilarious (can't help but laugh out loud). Some are very romantic. However, unlike stories in her other books, the last one in this compilation is sad, almost depressing but nontheless griping. Read it. You'll be sad that the book came to an end.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful, 27. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful Clasic. I have read all of the Anne of Green Gables Novels and have not been disapointed by one of them. I found out about Anne of Green Gables when I was in a book store. I thought it would be interesting so I got it to give it a try. Anne of Green Gables opened up a whole new world of L. M. Montgomery to me. She is a wonderful writer. Anne of Green Gables is full of funny and charming stories of Anne's life at Green Gables. Anne is an enchanting person. I love her with all my heart and hope you will too. Take my advise and buy an unabridged copy of this book and it's secualls: Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne's house of dreams, Anne of Inglside, Rainbow vally and Rilla of Inglside.
